Today's Verse : 1 Thessalonians 4:3


April 3, 2012

It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should
avoid sexual immorality...
-- 1 Thessalonians 4:3
Sanctified surely does sound "churchy," doesn't it? It means to
be special, reserved for God's use and glory, and not common. We
are to be an uncommon people! This is especially true in steering
clear of sexual immorality. We're to stay far away from it,
honoring God with our bodies (cf. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20) while
celebrating God's plan for joyful sexual fulfillment in marriage
(Proverbs 5; 1 Corinthians 7:1-7).
Father God, please protect and empower me as I seek to resist
sexual temptation in my sexually charged culture. I want to offer
myself to you as a holy sacrifice, pleasing to you and a blessing
to your people. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
